Hey guys! Hope you’re all practicing social distancing and keeping safe. My school’s gone online-only, and so I’ll be teaching from home until Summer. That’ll give me time to, you know, maybe blog more.
The silver lining: the latest Emma adaptation is going to be available on demand starting THIS FRIDAY! Great news! Stay tuned!
The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy as Emma Woodhouse and is directed by Autumn de Wilde. Other stars include Johnny Flynn as Mr. Knightley, Bill Nighy as Mr. Woodhouse, Mia Goth as Harriet, Miranda Hart as Miss Bates, Josh O’Connor as Mr. Elton, and Callum Turner as Frank Churchill. The screenplay is by Eleanor Catton.
The opening’s been delayed, but it sounds like a fun way to commemorate the 25th anniversary of this Emma-inspired film:
The company behind As If also created TV pop ups including Saved by the Max, Good Burger, The Peach Pit and the Breaking Bad experience. No word yet on the reason why they have decided to postpone the Clueless pop up.
I’ve also included some illustrations from various editions of the novel, most of which were sent to me by my friend Cinthia:
There are illustrations by Charles Edmund Brock (1870-1938) from 1898 and 1909 editions of Emma.
The 1898 edition Brock Illustrations are American reproductions of earlier versions presented in an English edition. The watercolor Brock illustrations come from a 1909 edition of the novel published by J.M. Dent & Co. in London and by E.P. Dutton & Co. in New York.
There are also illustrations by Philip Gough from an 1948 edition published by McDonald & Co., illustrations by Fritz Kredel from a 1964 edition from Heritage Press, and black and white “line” drawings by Hugh Thomson from another edition.
Since my old gallery script ceased to function, I’m bringing everything back right here using Gallery for WordPress. Please bear with me while I fine-tune this album and add new content. 🙂 To see the albums, continue past the jump…
So the new Emma adaptation, based on Jane Austen’s wonderful novel, is coming very soon. It’s to be released in New York and Los Angeles on February 21, followed by limited North American release on February 28th and a nationwide US release on March 6.
So Black Friday is almost upon us! Heart of Haute is having a 20% off Black Friday sale – which goes live Thanksgiving Day (tomorrow) at noon PST and ends Black Friday night (11:59pm PST) – and a Cyber Monday sale.
The Black Friday code is, unsurprisingly, “BLACKFRIDAY” – quotation marks are mine. The images are links, so just click on through once the sale is live…
The Cyber Monday sale will be live on November 26. It’s a “buy any one item and get the second item for equal or lesser value for 50% off” sale. Use code “CYBER” – quotation marks mine.
These are affiliate links, BTW, but I wouldn’t recommend you shop anywhere that I don’t shop. Have FUN shopping all the sales this weekend and let me know what you picked up. 🙂
